Our Facilities, Our Staff, Our Board, and Our Students
The Methacton School District’s physical facilities are in good to excellent condition. The district is embarking on a 5.7 million dollar athletic field renovation project on the high school campus. The district is considering energy savings reinvestment or performance contracting as a means to realize needed energy savings and to help offset costs of future capital improvements.
The district employs approximately 670 staff in one of five employee groups including: Methacton Education Association; Methacton Administrators Organization; Teamsters; Methacton Education Support Professional Association; and confidential employees. The MAO group and the confidential staff are the only two employee groups not represented by organized labor. The district sub-contracts food service and transportation services with private vendors.
Our faculty and staff hold positions of leadership, many have national board certifications, are regular Advanced Placement exam table leaders, and make lecture before colleagues at national conferences. Our staff leads by example while raising the bar for their students each and every day.
The Methacton Board of School Directors has historically been a strong and supportive representation of the community’s constituent groups. The current Board of School Directors are well-suited to propel Methacton forward in a fiscally responsible and educationally relevant manner.
Methacton students continue to exhibit success as seen through several students obtaining perfect SAT scores and the Methacton School District receiving the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s 13th highest School Performance Profile score. Methacton High School captured 6 PAC-10 Championships and 3 District 1 titles, a single school year accomplishment. Members of the Class of 2014 earned scholarships and grant money in excess of $16.4 million to further their post-secondary school education.
